Susannah Fielding, the voice actress for Jill Warrick in Final Fantasy XVI, shared a photo along with a little insight into recording for the game. She and Ben Starr, who plays Clive Rosfield, both took a photo together when the process began. In the shot, she noted that things go started “over four years ago.” That means for the two actors, the process likely began around 2019.
Here’s Fielding’s photo of her with Final Fantasy XVI Clive actor Starr. She noted that both of them were wearing headcams during the process. A headcam is a sort of system that is used for motion capture, as it tracks the performer’s face and expressions while they record.
Back where it all began @The_Ben_Starr and me in our first recording session for @finalfantasyxvi getting used to our headcams.
Over 4 years ago! Little did we know what was to come…. pic.twitter.com/52F0czYkh6
